Are you interested in running SQL Server in an Azure Virtual Machine? You've come to the right place! This wiki is for people interested in testing their SQL Server workloads in an Azure Virtual Machine. We're writing this wiki as we go so check back frequently
or subscribe to the RSS feed to get notified of updates.
On June 7, 2012 in San Francisco, Scott Guthrie encouraged the world to Meet the New Azure. As part of this milestone, Scott
announced the availability of several Azure Preview Features including a new Virtual Machine capability. You can watch all the presentations
and demos here. This exciting new
Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering makes it possible to deploy fully functional virtual machine environments in the cloud that can function independently, extend your on-premise IT environment using Virtual Networks, and interoperate
with other Azure cloud service offerings. Check out the Wiki Page Index below to get started.
If you have an interesting SQL Server workload you would like to test on Azure Virtual Machine, and you would like the opportunity to work closely with the SQL Server Customer Experience Team while you test it, please submit your nomination for the
SQL/IaaS Preview at http://bit.ly/sqliaasnom.
